Allen Baxter, rhp
Varina HS, Sandston, Va.


A virtual unknown at the start of the year, Baxter made more strides this year than almost any teenage pitcher on the East Coast. His raw arm strength, 6-foot-4, 215-pound frame and easy signability make him a solid candidate to go in the second or third round. Baxter's fastball has been clocked at 92-93 mph, but it's his only plus pitch. He hasn't developed command, though that should come as he smoothes out a raw delivery. He has no college options and has made it clear he wants to play pro ball.
